Black petunias

I’d heard about these black petunias and finally saw them in person. Truly black, surprisingly pretty, almost iridescent. I believe they call the variety Black Mamba.

Pink hydrangea

Had a truly lovely visit to PowellsWood garden in Federal Way, WA the other day. Magnificent! Only three acres, but so lovingly created and tended. Kudos to them.

Darling pink hydrangeas, perhaps a tree?
